Description of the procedure
Although laser hair removal effectively removes hair, number of treatments depends on the psychosomatic and physiological factors that determine how many treatments are necessary for the desired result. The effectiveness of treatment depends on the color and thickness of hair, as well as the depth of their roots, so it takes more treatments in case of red and blonde hair compared to black hairs.
It usually takes several treatments of permanent laser hair removal, in order for the treated area to remain hairless for a longer period of time. Regular maintenance treatments might also be needed. The most commonly laser-treated are legs, armpits, upper lip, chin, bikini area, arms and intimate zone. However, unwanted hair can be removed from almost every part of the body, except the eyelids and the eyeball area.
It is important to undergo a treatment for several times in an interval of 4 to 8 months, since hair growth in humans in certain stages of the melanin containing hair basis is connected with the root of hair only in the stage of growth. Different types always find themselves in this stage at different times.
After laser hair removal, avoid sun exposure, to natural sunlight as well as in tanning beds. Also, be prepared for possible falling of hair in the first few weeks after treatment.
Precautions and limitations
The most common side effects of permanent laser hair removal:
Skin irritation – occasional discomfort, redness and swelling are possible after laser hair removal. All signs and symptoms usually disappear within a few hours.
Change of pigment – laser hair removal can darken or lighten the treated skin, usually temporarily. Skin brightens mainly in those with darker skin, especially if the laser is improperly used in unsuitable environments.
It is rare, but laser hair removal can cause swelling, peeling, sores or other changes in skin texture.
Permanent hair removal is not recommended on the eyelids and the surrounding area due to possible serious injuries.
